Woodward Library’s new front entrance, which has been under construction since the end of December, has reopened as of August 8. A new front entrance was built to improve accessibility for disabled or handicapped visitors.

The course reserves section has been considerably minimized, and a new space full of natural light created. It offers 33 study spaces and tables, a bar height counter and lounge chairs for comfortable studying. The space is already attracting students and Aleteia Greenwood, Head of Woodward Library, predicts the space will be jam-packed once the school year starts again.

In addition to the new student-focused space, Greenwood says one of the most-needed new improvements was the creation of a consultation room for librarians. “We have faculty members and researchers that do consultation and research work with librarians, so this room is a perfect space for these meetings.” The new room is adjacent to the study area, and can be booked by librarians for consulting projects. 

The new study area also features the new Seed Lending Library cabinet which offers seeds for use. The seeds are available to anyone – for more information on the Seed Lending Library visit their website
